JS CodeRetreat Munich #4

One more time, right before Xmas. Another brain-stretching day and lot's of fun. 
You want to focus on the code just to become the best code you ever wrote and not just to get the feature out? This is your opportunity!
Curious? Never done it before? Come and join us!

A Coderetreat is a day-long, intensive practice event, focusing on the fundamentals of software development and design. This FREE event gives the opportunity to practice TDD, Clean Code and Refactoring for a whole day. Developers can disconnect from constraints like time and pressure, and train to become better. You don't have to ship anything. JUST PRACTICE! 

The JavaScript CodeRetreat is a more focused code retreat. We try to focus even more on the craftsmanship, even more on one language in order to dive even deeper and find out more about how to become better. If you have never done it before, just come and have fun doing your craft! This will be a great experience.

    Thanks a lot for this!
    Never thought this would be so much fun for free :)

    Someone asked for solutions to the Katas - where is the GitHub repo to push them to?

      Hi Biljana, this is probably one of the best tutorials to learn how to do your first repos on github. It is short and very well explained:­. Hope it helps you! :-)

    Some conversations during the retreat made me think about conferences and blog posts which may interest you.
    For the newbies but as well the experienced with javascript, Pamela Fox, the administrator of the meetup, shares tools which could help you to learn javascript and she explains how experienced developers could contribute to these tools to make javascript easier to learn.
    By the way, she gives very good example explaining why javascript is not trivial.
    Here is the video :

    There is this irish professor, J. Paul Gibson, who teaches programming to 5 years old children.
    To know more :

    I’ve just discovered the “testing on the toilet” practice at Google.
    Experienced developers share good practices in the company by sticking posters on the toilets’ doors.
    Some of these posters here :

    Are developers with relatively small experience also welcomed in the event?

    • Wolfram K.

      Oh yes definitely. Everyone will just learn. It's not that hard is about trying. Looking forward to see you
